The rifles I've tested Federal Gold Medal in, have all strongly preferred the subsonic version (1080fps marked on the box) to the higher velocity version, which hasn't shot very well in my guns.

I have had outstanding results in many good rifles using Eley target ammo. If you really want to know how well your rifle shoots, a good scope, a good rest, a calm, windless day and several 5-shot groups of Eley Tenex are about as good a picture as you will get, in my experience. I have personally not had much luck over the years with RWS R50 -- have often found good lots of Eley Standard (at about $2.50 a box) to shoot better than R50 (at $8 per box) in my rifles.

Hope this helps,
